Baylor coach on Petty: Jets fans are in for a big treat

Baylor coach Art Briles figured quarterback Bryce Petty was a first-rounder. Thirty two NFL teams didn't feel the same in the 2015 NFL Draft earlier this month.

The young signal-caller fell to the fourth round, where the New York Jets scooped him up. According to Briles, they won't be disappointed.

“Jets fans are in for a big treat,’’ Briles recently told the NY Daily News.

Briles scoffs at questions about whether Petty can pick up an NFL system, or if he'll require a more simplified playbook.

“To me, here’s his football IQ: 8,600 yards, 61 TDs, nine INTs, two Big 12 titles,” Briles said. “That’s a pretty good IQ. It’s about how you produce on the field. Did you win? Are you a leader? Do you have the intangibles? Do you love the game? Yeah, he’s got all of those, but the most important one is that he wins. He’s a winner.”
